Pores: love ’em or hate ’em, we all have ’em. As necessary as they are in keeping our skin healthy, moisturized and “breathing,” I still can’t help but endlessly stare at them whenever I look into the bathroom mirror. From enlarged pores that interfere with your otherwise Insta-worthy glow to clogged pores and blackheads that never seem to go away, we know how frustrating it can be to rein them in just a little bit. While there’s no way to eliminate or permanently “minimize” them completely, there are a lot of products on the market that can help make them less glaring.
As someone who’s struggled with the combination of larger pores and somewhat oily skin for most her life, I’ve done a fair amount of researching and testing over the years in hopes of discovering the most effective products that give my skin a luminous, filter-like texture. I’m here today to share my favorite findings, from TikTok-viral exfoliating powders to wallet-friendly salicylic acid cleansers that can help to decongest clogged pores and minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.
Above all, the focus of these products help to effectively clean, exfoliate and soothe your pores rather than just covering them up (and potentially clogging them further), so you can improve your skin’s overall health at the same time. It’s a win-win beauty situation, so get ready to add these top-rated picks to your digital shopping cart.
